Ethereal Riffian start Crowdfunding Campaign for 3rd Full Length…

Crowdfunding Campaign for Ethereal Riffian’s 3rd LP

 

One of our favorite bands here at Taste Nation, Spiritualized rockers from Ukraine, Ethereal Riffian are launching a crowdfunding campaign via Indiegogo to support their 3rd full-length album which they plan to release next year and we couldn’t be happier!!

With all Ethereal Riffian’s previous releases their intention was to make people realize their true potential via different spiritual traditions, but with the third album we want to bring the wisdom from the Himalayan Caves to the streets of big cities and radio stations. Eight years since the inception of the band, we have refined our musical language to be able to produce the songs which talk directly to the Spirit and now we’re finally ready to record the album which will shake you to the core.

We’ve been creating psychedelic rock music with a message since 2010 and are now ready to record our 3rd full-length album. We have started working on the new album in the beginning of 2016 and it took us a little more than two and a half years to write 10 new songs full of energy and purpose.

“Since 2010, we have produced 6 releases and never before in our history we have asked our fans to contribute,” comments Val Kornev, frontman of the band. “This situation is very different, because we have many ambitious plans for this album and we’re looking forward to your contribution. Musically it’s a much more straightforward work compared to our previous efforts and ideologically, it can be described as bold as Rage Against the Machine meets the Dalai Lama.

You can follow the process of album’s recording via Ethereal Riffian’s YouTube channel.

Deny Everything; Meet CONTRA (Members Of Sofa King Killer, Rue, The Unholy Three, Etc.) And Hear Some Songs

The roots of Cleveland, Ohio’s Contra are deeply connected to a bevy of bands that the members either are in currently or were in previously. In fact, Contra itself originally started as the instrumental trio of guitarist Chris Chiera (Sofa King Killer), drummer Aaron Brittain (ex-Rue) and baritone guitarist Adam Horwatt (So Long Albatross). That line up recorded a demo, Son Of Beast, that revealed the guys’ style of blended metal, blues, rock, and sludge but still, something was missing. Enter vocalist Larry Brent of such acts as The Unholy Three, Hatchet Job, Don Austin and Splinter. Then, after only three shows of the quartet playing together, Larry began recording vocals to eight of the ten tracks of what would become the Contra debut, Deny Everything

Deny Everything will be released by Robustfellow Productions and Shifty Records on July 1st. It was recorded in Cleveland at Bad Back Studios and mastered at Cauliflower Audio. Today, we are presenting you the new track ‘Snake Goat‘ below and after you’ve enjoyed it, you can check out three more songs from the ten-tracker further on down.
